    The only scenario that Gore would have won would have been if the most lenient standard was used for counting disputed ballot. But that could have actually boosted Bush's numbers if the recount was statewide.
    Further....Gore had asked for the recounts of those specific districts to determine whether there was a basis to challenge the election. The recount would not have been limited to those districts. The ironic thing is that factcheck determined that had the Supreme Court NOT stopped the voting, those districts would not have shown Gore to have won, however, in independent recounts of the state, it appears that Gore had more votes and would have carried Florida had there been an actual recount of all the votes done.

    Six years of Growth and Jobs under Bush? Surely you jest. GWB took this country to the brink of economic and moral bankruptcy.

    No...actually, if you read what I wrote, I said we will never know for sure....however, most every independent study done after the 2000 election showed Gore actually had more votes in Florida and thus, should have won the election. Thats pretty close to "for sure".

    There you'd be wrong. Only the so-called "independent" studies done by some very biased liberals.

    You wrote Gore was "elected".

    Post your independent studies.

    It's pretty tough to post we will NEVER know for sure, and then claim you know.

    But hey, 12+ years and counting. It's all good.

    Oh for God's sake! Obama has been President for 5 years now!!!! Gore lost, get over it!

    Good evening, Ocean515.

    After so many years, and how many unbiased recounts, there are some that still don't believe the truth? If Gore had managed to win his home State, what happened elsewhere would not have mattered. Why do they have a problem remembering that fact? Amazing!

    Most independent studies showed the opposite... Gore lost.

    Yeah, but they don't post those at Truthout or Democratic Underground so most Gore shippers haven't seen them.
